I've recently been diagnosed with adenomyosis as well as Endo. I've got a few things wrong Endo which was removed from everywhere including bowel and bladder in March this year and I've got interstitial cystitis and my bowel has collapsed since my Endo surgery in March.
I kinda know now what pain is associated with which condition. My gastro and urologist are sorting my interstitial cystitis and collapsed bowel out with more surgery.
My main problem is the Endo and adenomyosis. I cannot take the contraceptive pill as I come out in a rash and hives, I've tried them all. I've had the implant in my arm which makes me bleed lightly every day and doesn't help the pain. I've tried zoladex but my mood swings, hot sweats and amnesia was not great so I stopped that a couple years ago. My gynae consultant suggested trying the marina coil to try stop the Endo growing back and stop the adenomyosis getting bigger but I cannot even use tampax anymore and sex is almost impossible so I really don't want to have the coil at the moment. So I'm just wondering if anyone has Endo and adenomyosis and what helps them with the constant period type pains. I'm really struggling at the moment so any advice would be fab.
Here's a list of the meds I take every day
Co-codamol 30/500 8 a day
Tramadol 50mg 6-7 a day
Multi vitamin and mineral
Vitamin e with rosehip and bioflavonoids
Any advice would be great. I'm sick of feeling like a 31 year old stuck in 91 year old body
I've been going for a full body massage every 3 weeks but nothing seems to help anymore
